This trail has ZERO markings at all. And make sure you watch for wasp nests under rocks!

I loved this hike! There’s a parking lot on the right side
Of the road by the CT sign. There’s a single wooden portapotty there also if you need. The trailhead is on the left. Go to Indian Rockhouse and end up at Snoopers. It’s a fantastic hike and that view never gets old! Best sunrise in Chatta❤️

Great hike today. Incredible views!

nice park , very crowed, but good place to take a break while riding

Ride the incline up, then bike down. It's so much fun. Take a left once you get off the incline, then bike about a mile on the road until you pick up the trail, which will be on your left. Follow signs. When you get to a fork in the trail, go right. Cross the main road into Ruby Falls overflow parking, and continue down the trail. Once you hit another paved road, turn left, and then left again at the stop sign. You will see the Incline parking lot on your left. Takes about an hour, and is 95% down hill. Kids should probably be 10+. Have fun!

One of my all time favorite spots! Highly recommend

Been today. Great trail. Has some jogging parts but also some steep parts as well. Very interesting

Very easy

Drove this one today. Took at right at the Y instead of going around the loop. It takes you down a nice hill, thru a creek and back up the hill on other side. Nice brow drive at top.

This was very challenging for me. So much going up. .
then up some more

I would rate this hike more easy than anything up until right before you summit. It twists and turns up rocks. Beautiful views at the top! A must see.

Loved this trail! Easy with great views, nicely shaded as well.

Soooo gorgeous. A little bit of a make your own trail type hike. Amazing waterfall and lots to explore and climb on!

Did not plan accordingly. Signage wasn't the best and did not know where we were going. However they are worn paths so we didn't necessarily get lost just turned around. Views were spectacular!!

Everything is great on this trail. Except for few dogs off the leash.

Ended up doing this trail accidentally. Very difficult, but we managed to plow thru it. 11 miles of hard hiking. Not a lot of signage throughout the hike.

Love this park! It connects to the larger Coolidge Park and has picnic tables in the shade; easily maneuvered on foot or bicycle with mostly wide sidewalks and asphalt pathways. I walk my pup here a few times weekly. Very relaxing to meander around and enjoy a little of the artwork. Also has a Chattanooga Bike Station onsite.

Great after work 30-40 min trail run with my pup! One of my favorites. Has mountain bikers so if you’re bringing a dog, weekdays may be better with fewer bikers as some of the sections are narrow. Great elevation gain for a solid workout and awesome views from some of the high points, esp in the fall. Convenient parking area as well.

Went for a Sunday evening dog walk/hike. Quiet area, beautiful bird songs, only passed two other people on the trail. Several hours after a rain and the mud wasn’t bad. The puddly areas were raised on planks. Two places where trees were downed were tricky to get through but otherwise enjoyable. The pup got totally muddy but loved it. The pine straw covered much of the trail so it was navigable in just Chacos. It also looked recently cut back in large parts so brush was in check.
The mosquitoes were vicious though! Definitely wear long sleeves!

This “Big Daddy” loop trail is one of my favorite and harder trail runs I’ve done. Got a little sandbagged on this one. Loved the traverse to Skyuka Springs. Hated the 2 mile climb to Bluff view Trail via John Smartt.

I did a variation of this to Lawson Rock Overlook. It’s a great 10 mile out and back from Signal Mt HS. Well except for the downed trees I had to get through going up plateau to Prentice Cooper but that was 7/6/16.

Nearly drove to Snoopers Rock on the ATV trail next to the parking area - in an Audi SUV - no 4WD needed. The Cumberland Trail is next to the rock and you can go for miles and miles along the ridge line. Great hike, even if it’s a bit toasty in mid-July.

A little confusing to get to the trail head. But once you are there, the hike is well marked, and a great intermediate hike! The view from the rock is worth the 5 miles on a warm and clear day!

Accidentally did this. Amazing Civil War signage. Not for kids.

Great trail, easy to access and has a great view

Hiked a section of this trail. Seemed mostly for bikes but I only saw hikers on the trail when we went. Lots of little up and down hills, good moderate trail. Bugs and ticks were abundant, check yourself!
